Centennial Acquisitions Exhibiton, October 22nd-23rd, 30th-31st, 2010: Edward Page, who executed this painting of Historic New Englands Boardman House in Saugus, was one of a group of painters who have come to be known as "the Lynn Beach painters." Like most in the group, Page is best known for his coastal scenes, but this image of an architectural relic in a pastoral setting demonstrates the groups characteristic use of quick brush strokes to evoke varying qualities of light in natural settings.
